Int 31H Function 0C00H
Install Resident Service Provider Callback
Protected mode resident service providers (protected mode TSRs) can
provide services to 16-bit DPMI programs, 32-bit DPMI programs, or
both. A resident service provider uses this function to request
notification from the host whenever another DPMI program in the same
virtual machine is loaded or terminated.

- A DPMI client that uses this function declares its intent to
provide resident protected mode services. The client must
subsequently terminate and stay resident using Int 31H Function 0C01H. DPMI clients which
intend to stay resident only to provide services to real mode programs
should not use this function.The data structure provides room for a data descriptor, a code
descriptor, and an offset for both 16-bit and 32-bit protected modes.
The client can conveniently initialize the descriptor fields to valid
values by fetching copies of its current code and data descriptors
with Int 31H Function 000BH.
- If only one mode is supported by the resident service provider,
then the code descriptor for the unsupported mode should be
initialized to zero.
- This function is called on the locked protected mode stack.
